Construction on U.S. Shelter’s final townhome building at Oak Ridge is about to begin. Interested buyers will need to act fast to secure one of these luxurious new townhomes, in this charming new home development in Elgin. The townhomes are perfect for entry-level buyers, young professionals and growing families alike, offering affordable, spacious home plans in a well-established neighborhood.

Nearly complete, Oak Ridge is situated in a highly desirable location on Elgin’s east side that combines the appeal of living in a tranquil, private setting with the benefits of nearby conveniences and easy highway access to interstate 90.

“The Townes at Oak Ridge offer high quality, reasonably priced floor plans for those who want a value-packed home in a peaceful setting. Combine that with U.S. Shelter’s unmatched value and commitment to quality customer service and you’ll find that buying the perfect, new home is achievable at Oak Ridge,” said John Sorenson, U.S. Shelter Vice President.

Starting from the upper $160's, the remaining townhomes feature spacious floor plans at approximately 1,587 square feet with ample opportunities to customize the plan to a buyer’s individual lifestyle, including adding ceiling height in the master bedroom and upgrading cabinets, light fixtures and flooring.
Homebuyers immediately notice a difference the moment they step foot inside the nicely appointed two-story townhome. The Townes feature beautiful, easy-living plans and offer bright open living areas, spacious master suites, full sized two-car garages, three bedrooms or two bedrooms plus an oversized loft and plenty of windows for a light and open feel. It also includes two and a half bathrooms with his and her sinks in the master bathroom and a functional kitchen with a large pantry. Homes at Oak Ridge are completed to a high standard specification, including architectural detailing on the exteriors and quality interior finishes, as well as a host of energy efficient features,  and increased insulation to help keep monthly utility bills down.
Because the Oak Ridge townhomes are professionally managed and maintained, buyers also have the benefit of low maintenance homeownership without the headache of lawn maintenance, snow removal and exterior repairs.
Equally appealing is the charming new home development in which the townhomes reside. With oversized home sites and generous green space, the Oak Ridge community includes inviting green landscape, walking paths, manicured grounds, gently winding streets, adjoining parks and a variety of neighborhood gathering places.

“What’s great about Oak Ridge is that it’s surrounded by many great recreational opportunities while still being located only minutes from dining and shopping venues. Buyers truly get the best of both worlds—easy access to life’s comforts with the enjoyment of living in a nearly completed new home community,” said Sorenson.

The town of Elgin offers all the benefits of contemporary living but in a relaxed setting, surrounded by an area rich in history. Nestled along the Fox River and recently selected as one of the best places in the country to raise a family by BestLife Magazine, the vibrant and growing city of Elgin offers shopping, dining nightlife, culture and enlivening activities for all ages.

Only one new townhome building and one single-family lot remains available at the nearly completed Oak Ridge community. Any buyer interested in securing their ideal home in this highly sought-after community should act quickly as this will be the last opportunity to purchase a brand new home!

What’s more, buyers also benefit from working with a reputable, third generation family builder—celebrating 40 years as a homebuilding leader in northern Illinois. With their successful track record and proven industry stability, buyers can count on U.S. Shelter to make building their new home easy and rewarding from start to finish.
